Julie Soefer Photography
You may not know Houston native Julie Soefer by name, but chances are you have seen her photographs. Her work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Texas Monthly, and Houston magazine. Julie graduated from the Tisch School for the Arts at New York University, and began her career in the New York photography scene before relocating to her hometown of Houston, Texas in 2006. Julie worked closely in New York with legendary photographer Arnold Newman, known for his environmental portraits of iconic artists and politicians such as Picasso, Woody Allen, and JFK. After working with Newman, Julie worked behind the scenes for famed celebrity photographer Andrew Eccles, producing photo shoots for major motion picture studios and television networks. In 2004, Julie’s images surged into the national media spotlight, as they were featured in director Morgan Spurlock’s documentary Super Size Me. Her now iconic photo of Spurlock with his mouth stuffed full of French fries was used as the movie poster. In 2010, Julie was a finalist for New York’s prestigious Hearst Photography Biennial, and was the winner of the 20th Annual Texas Photographic Society’s Members Only Show.
